Several historical events occur that will carve the path of techno forever. The Berlin wall falls, opening the city up to become an international haven for culture and edgy art and the future techno capital of the world. Before this, in Hungary, the Iron Curtain finally meets its demise, opening an entire displaced generation up to experience western culture at long last. Fittingly, it is in this year and this country that a boy is born with the drive and skills to turn the future of techno into his own private playground. Jano van der Wegen, known by a rapidly expanding devoted fanbase as JNO, got his first CD player at the brittle age of 7, a mere few years after being adopted and naturalized in the DJ heaven that is Holland. It was at this pivotal crossroads in his young life that a childhood friend gifted him some trance and hardstyle CD's, planting the seeds that would soon blossom into an obsession for heavy drums and grooving percussion. After getting into DJ-ing with friends in their basement around the turn to adolescence, Jano tragically lost his twin sister - that he was adopted with - at age 17, and he subsequently turned this awful heartbreak into the one thing he knew that could give him the solace he craved and needed: house beats. In the years that followed, his first tracks immediately got picked up by every legend in the techno scene, where he increasingly gravitated towards after his best friend dragged him to his first techno rave at age 26. He started getting noticed by the likes of Adam Beyer, Luca Agnelli, Exhale and even got to go B2B with I Hate Models. There would be no turning back from this. JNO and music have always been in an incredibly personal and intimate relationship alongside his desire to help others overcome issues of their own - Jano became a psychologist with a specialty in complex PTSS. Being motivated to not just help but also inspire and touch the soul of people, JNO's music tells his despondent yet beautiful life story of how he found musical peace in heartbreak. It's sorrowful yet euphoric, dejected though enraptured, moments of sonic despair intertwine with blissful melodies of rhapsody. An unwavering intrinsic motivation to show the entire world his vision already saw him release a wide array of impressive releases on Coincidence Records, Etruria Beat, and even Second State where he's now found his home. He knows he's going to take over the world, and so will you.
